Hi. It's me.

I swear, it's me. Katie.

My blog may look a little different but the person behind it is still the same. I assure you.

I've been playing around with some blog facelifting and such, and welp--I decided to give my own blog a go. Considering my husband used to do it all for me, I'm pretty pleased with myself.

I was scared. I was oh so scared. But, somehow, I made it work.

I'm going for a winter'ish (duh) theme. But not trying to be over-the-top Christmas'ey and such. Hopefully I accomplished just that.

So, I'll show you around a bit if you don't mind. Some things are different here.

You'll notice the pages at the top? See them? Now you can easily find out how to contact me, my etsy shop, info about our little family, and even Eme's progression pictures right there. Easy, peasy. I really like how it frees up so much room on my sidebars. A more simplistic, less chaotic look, don't you think?

Did you see that little advertise tab? Yea. That. Don't go and get all freaked out on me.

My thoughts are this. My blog gets read by a lot of people. No, no, I'm no MckMama, but I do get close to 800 unique readers a day. There's a lot of people visiting. My google friend connect is rising (over 600 now, wowza), and I have a high amount of people come from outside, non-blogger sources too. [Hello? Who are you?? Can you please say hello sometime? K. Cool.]

It's a good place to get your name out there. Plus, the readers here (hey, that's you!) are all so amazingly wonderful. Really. Whether you have an Etsy shop like myself, a blog you'd like to promote, or any other business of some-sort. Check it out. You know you're working with a loyal long-time blogger, and I have new posts up about six times a week.

Plus, you know how I am all about promoting other moms and their businesses. I think its rad.

Enough said, I think.

So. Back to the you like the new look?


Happy Monday!
